El Diablo at Six Flags Great Adventure has gone vertical! A good friend of ALT, Stephanie, was kind enough to share these awesome pictures from today of El Diablo construction! As you scroll down, the pictures are throughout the day as more pieces were added!
Earlier in the day.
Very exciting to see it taking shape...
Opening this spring!
Another piece being lifted up!
Here comes some more El Diablo!
As the day went on, Stephanie shared more pictures as crews worked quickly to put more of the ride up!
A look further back in the midway.
The top piece being installed!
El Diablo is expected to open around Memorial Day Weekend. Thanks again to Stephanie for sharing these awesome pictures, and keep tuned for more El Diablo updates!
ALT has been hearing and seeing things at the park over the last few months, while Screamscape has also heard one rumor for 2016 suggesting the park may be planning on adding their own B&M Launched Wing Coaster, similar in Holiday World's Thunderbird. According to the rumor, one line of thought may be to somehow reuse the old Chiller station structure for the new coaster (it's wide enough, as it did used to hold two side-by-side launched coasters) and maybe even have the coaster launch out and through the old Observatory structure, which is also still standing, with the rest of the layout running somewhere between here and the water tower area and back.
It would be nice to see this section of the park brought back to life again.

El Diablo at Six Flags Great Adventure is now open, and ALT was in attendance at the Media Event mid last week!
The whole area looks really great!

El Diablo is a VERY fun ride, and a great addition to Great Adventure's collection of attractions! Thanks to Six Flags Great Adventure for inviting All-American Thrills to the media event! We're extremely excited for Batman Backwards later this summer!
Brad Ross, the world renown magician is now performing at Six Flags Great Adventure through the end of August. ALT met Brad during the media preview and after the show, which is VERY family friendly and proud to share the highlights from our time at the event.
